DirectionsLine a 8-9" square pan with foil. Or a plate that has been buttered.In a large heavy sauce pan stir in sugar, cocoa powder and 1/8 tsp of salt. Mix well. Gently stir in milk with a wooden spoon (make sure it is a wooden spoon).Cook over medium heat stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a full rolling boil.Boil without stirring until balls of candy can be dropped in cold water forming a ball that can be picked up by fingers.Remove from heat, add butter and vanilla. Do not stir.Cool at room temperature, this could take up to 2 hours or more. Do not stir.Beat in Walnuts if preferred. Beat fudge with wooden spoon until candy thickens and looses some of it's gloss. This can take up to 15-20 minutes.Quickly spread into prepared pan or plate. Cool.Cut into squares. Can use a warm knife that has been dipped into hot water and dried off to cut easier.Wrap loosley in foil and place in fridge. I did not place my candy in the fridge, just sat it on the counter and it was fine.
